Navy Office, 28 October 1748. 1 page 12 x 8 inches, defective at head, with loss, three holes, paper weakness due to damp. In poor condition, but worth rescuing on account of the subject of the Warrant: Vice Admiral The Hon. John Byron, RN (1723 – 1786), known as Foul-weather Jack.. As a midshipman, he sailed in the squadron under George Anson on his voyage around the world, though Bryon made it to southern Chile, and returned to England with the captain of HMS Wager. In December 1746 Captain Stringer was removed from the Siren, and the Hon. John Byron took command. Siren then served as part of Admiral George Anson's fleet in 1747. Byron circumnavigated the world as a commodore with his own squadron in 1764-1766. He fought in battles in The Seven Years' War and the American Revolution. He rose to Vice Admiral of the White before his death in 1786. Edward Falkingham, who has signed this warrant, served for a time as Governor of Newfoundland (1732) and Comptroller of the Navy

7 York Steet, Charlotte Street [London], undated, c.1850. 7 x 7 inches, in worn condition, laid down. A remarkable surviving manuscript record of Victorian low life. Joseph Ady (1770–1852) was a notorious English impostor. His career is recorded by De Quincey in an essay on Secret Societies. Ady was at one time a hatter in London, but failing in that business he hit upon the device of raising funds by means of circular letters. He would look up the lists of unclaimed inheritances, dividends, and bequests, and then write, without stamping his letters, to any people of those names that he could find, offering to produce ‘something to their advantage’ on payment of 20/-. In numerous instances he evaded the law and baffled the magistrates and post-office authorities.
